It naturally loves skin…
One of the great benefits of Coconut is that it’s a fantastic skin moisturiser, which helps skin surface lipids remain intact for improved hydration. It’s also great for softening tricky areas of hard skin where ordinary moisturisers may not have much effect, such as on the heels, elbows and knees as well as for use as a daily moisturiser.Unlike synthetic mineral oil, Coconut oil is natural, making it an even more popular skin smoother.
It’s packed with polyphenols…
Another advantage of Coconut is that it’s loaded with anti-inflammatory antioxidants such as polyphenols. These clever little compounds help keep skin in tip-top condition by smoothing it and keeping moisture in. As a natural anti-inflammatory, Coconut oil has also been shown to be capable of quenching free radicals. It’s excellent moisturising properties mean it’s worth making skin care formulated with organic Coconut and naturally derived ingredients your go-to products to keep skin hydrated in winter.
It’s the perfect all-rounder for scalp and hair…
Studies have shown that Coconut oil can reduce protein loss in hair and has the uncanny ability to penetrate the hair shaft without weighing hair down which both make for smooth, shiny hair and a moisturised, happy scalp.
